Pregnancy is one of the most fascinating things that every woman will experience. There is nothing like growing a human inside of your own body. Some women that already gave birth couple of times will feel like and learned more and more about the process and all of the weird (and usually normal) symptoms of pregnancy.

Like, did you know that your baby pees in the womb? And do you know where that pee goes? They drink it. Kind of disgusting, right?!

Here are 12 weird facts about pregnancy that will blow your mind!

Babies kidneys don't work completely in the uterus, so their urine is pratically "pure water"; all metabolites and toxins go throug the placenta to the mother's bloodstream to get filtered by HER kidneys, which have to work double-time, along with most of her organs, while occupying a fraction of the normal space. Pregnancy is hard on the body.

I didn't think this was a "Weird Pregnancy Fact" - I thought most people already knew this one.
